Welche anderen Artikel kaufen Kunden, nachdem sie diesen Artikel angesehen haben?
Dieses Buch ist in englischer Sprache geschrieben, aber gut verständlich.
Es erklärt so ziemlich alle Funktionen von Photoshop CS6 - nicht durch eine Aufzahlung von allen Funktionen sondern in Form von 'Mittmach-Lehreinheiten'- ich finde das Buch recht gut.
Ich hatte auch schon das Buch für den Vorgänger CS5 - und musste leider feststellen, das sich wenig getan hat - es sind die gleichen Texte nur die Neuerungen wurden eingearbeitet, die Bilder getauscht und ein Kapitel über Video eingefügt.
Wer also den Vorgänger schon hat braucht dieses Buch eigentlich nicht noch einmal zu kaufen - für alle andern ist es ein Kauftip.

3.0 von 5 SternenA Helpful Book that Will Teach You the Basics of CS68. November 2013
Paul S. Remington
- Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I’m taking a college course on Photoshop CS6. The primary text for this course is this textbook, Adobe Photoshop CS6 Classroom In A Book. This is a self-directed course that has me working independently along with a primary mentor, so there are no other students or formal classes. I was instructed in the learning contract to complete this book along with eight projects and a paper. I ordered this book on Amazon and have been working my way through it one chapter at a time. I’ve finally completed it.
Not having a class to go to or other students to confer with makes this review a good one because it provides an account that is representative of one man’s experience working with the content provided by the team of authors. There are no outside influences to sway my learning abilities. No professor to guide me, no students to correct me, no other resources, just me and this book.
With all that said, I will state that this book is well written. It has been carefully thought out and edited. As a professional writer myself, there are a few things I could polish in terms of the editing, but that’s out of the scope of this review. I’ve learned a lot from this book and walked away from it having a much better understanding of the capabilities of CS6 and the things I can do with the software. It is extremely powerful software that can be an enormous asset to both a layperson and a seasoned professional.
It is not without its faults. There were many times I labored over some of the chapters because the authors make certain assumptions about the knowledge base of the reader. Not all menu options and features are clearly communicated and it can be rather daunting trying to figure out what menu button, feature, option drop down box, or items I need to access and where they’re located. Screen captures aren’t consistently supplied to help guide you through the lessons. A few times menu selections or features were not available at all, which I learned later is because certain plugins had not been installed on my computer (Zoomify, Flash, etc.). On more than one occasion, menu selections were named something a little different, which leads me to believe the book may have been written from an earlier release of CS6. On one occasion a screen selection wasn’t available at all. I was able to work around this by digging into other menu drop downs to locate it elsewhere.
The beginning of each chapter provides a time estimate for the chapter. “This chapter will take less than an hour to complete,” for example. I found these estimates to be very inaccurate. For me, if it said an hour, I’d estimate two hours, minimum. Add the frustrations described above, and this amounted to more time. In my experience, their estimates were not well determined for those inexperienced with the software, carefully trying to work through each lesson.
The book comes with a supplied disk that contains lessons for each chapter. These are extremely helpful and offer excellent opportunities for the user to learn and practice the lessons in the book. Each lesson provides a start and end file. The end file is the completed project. The start file is what you start with. Each chapter instructs you to save and rename this file to a working copy that you use as your sandbox for learning. You follow the chapter to complete the lesson and create exactly what you see in the end file.
This learning paradigm is an excellent platform to ingrain each lesson into the user’s mind and fingers. If you follow it faithfully, you will learn a wealth of features, tips, and tricks about CS6.
A previous reviewer criticized this book by stating it is really just the CS5 book renamed as CS6. I kept this in mind while working through the book. This is incorrect. I found a number of CS6-specific features discussed. I’m sure the publisher started with CS5 as a launching pad to develop, added CS6 features, and then ran it though a number of reviews to vet it for content accuracy.
Adobe Photoshop is an extremely rich and powerful product that can be used to do much more than this book instructs. The intent of this book is to acquaint a user with a broad cross section of its most powerful features. Don’t expect it to teach you everything about the product. It’s designed to get you to a very comfortable starting point from which to learn more.
If it weren’t for the many frustrations I bumped into while working through the various chapters, I’d give this book a solid 4 stars.

With 14 lessons I was able to cover most of the book in two weeks, spending about 2 hours a day. I found the book easy to follow, and the activities they proposed interesting. I attempted my first solo piece and though it took me about 4 hours, I was able to flip through the book and find the help I needed. I think this book is excellent for beginners...like me!

I will never forget what a precious $12-$13 dollars that this had been and I was so ever grateful and so happy to have found this item on line at at a reduced and affordable cost to me. I do recall, however, being a bit confused by which particular book I had chosen because upon receiving this book and bringing it to class, I believe that there was yet another book, which I had and was missing. In any event, this book arrived on time... but I believe it had been delivered incorrectly to my neighbor on the side apartment and then, I don't know what her problem was... However I did have a limited amount of time in getting my assignments done and... because she had taken my books and NOT told me... and not had the decency to simply put the books which were clearly NOT hers in MY DOOR... and the fact that I was working practically full time while going to school... well, the wrongful delivery did set me back, GREATLY in school and I was quite en-nerved for two weeks. but I persevered. Actually, however... because of all of this, my grades and performance did greatly suffer in the end. but I decided I didn't care and I forgave my housemate, although she never formally apologized and, after this experience, I learned quite a great deal about her. Thanks for the book, but WRONG door. lol

2.0 von 5 SternenLacking in real information and explanation about basics of Photoshop11. Februar 2015
- Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
First of all 432 pages? I'm not sure where Amazon is getting that figure, but mine ends at 385. That's irrelevant. What's important is that I breezed through the first half of the book thinking it was amazing and I was a pro, but realized that it came easily because I was already familiar with Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. I had played around with them on my own but knew I was missing many basics, which is why I wanted a definitive guide that would cover all the ground and explain why I'm doing what. Adobe does not do that at all. It takes you through the steps and leaves you wondering why you are completing a certain action, and what the purpose is of many functions. There is essentially zero explanation, through many lessons I would consult other sources, like Photoshop for Dummies or internet forums looking for something that gave me a 'why' and not just a 'how'. If I were left to create a similar project to some of the exercises presented in the book, I'd be SOL. Pretty disappointed with the 'official' Adobe Guide. It also never addresses what happens if the steps outlined don't actually work. Another time where I must turn to outside sources and helpful users on forums to figure out the mistep. It's lacking in icons and further graphics, for example, if I didn't know what tracking was from InDesign, the instructions that simply say "tracking: -10" would leave me confused (and completely wondering what tracking was). Or at the beginning of the chapter it tells you you will "learn how to use guides to position text" and the instruction is literally "Drag a vertical guide"....I could imagine my parents or anyone unfamiliar with Adobe wouldn't have the first clue where to start. All in all, very disappointed with the lacking material that explains why you do something and what effect it has...this is just a step-by-step, and at times, not very clear at that.

3.0 von 5 SternenGreat for beginners learning where things are but not necessarily what things are.6. August 2013
- Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am an absolute beginner to photoshop and retouching photos. I bought this book because I was wanting a step by step way to learn photoshop and how I can use it to retouch photos. It's a great book for teaching exactly what all tools Photoshop has to offer and where they are located, but in its instructions it doesn't really tell you why you are doing what you are doing and how its really going to effect the photograph. I guess it does that on the really important tools, but it doesn't really do it for every thing it asks you to do. It just tells you "change blah blah slider to this" rather than "we are going to change the blah blah to a blah blah, so change this slider to this." Not really useful for the absolute beginner like me. I'm not looking for it to teach me how to train my editing eye, but I do want to know why I'm setting this particular slider, tool, button, etc. the way that I am. I got more knowledge by just individually playing around with each tool as I went along. On the positive side, it does have a step by step learning process showing you a decent amount of its offerings and the media files are included for the digital book (much cheaper than the paper version).
